The Juliet Stories
By Carrie Snyder
'a coming-of-age tale about the painful and wonderful experiences of motherhood... a compelling novel told in the most beautifully crafted way, and the frequent lapse into disjointed stream of consciousness renders the style close to that of Eimear McBride's A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing. It is a wonderful rarity when a book leaves you so profoundly affected' - We Love This BookJuliet Friesen is ten years old when her family moves to Nicaragua. It is 1984, the height of Nicaragua's post-revolutionary war, and the peace-activist Friesens have come to protest American involvement. In the midst of this tumult, Juliet's family lives outside of the boundaries of ordinary life. They've escaped, and the ordinary rules don't apply. Threat is pervasive, danger is real, but the extremity of the situation also produces a kind of euphoria, protecting Juliet's family from its own cracks and conflicts.When Juliet's younger brother becomes sick with cancer, their adventure ends abruptly. The Friesens return to Canada only to find that their lives beyond Nicaragua have become the war zone.One by one, they drift from each other, and Juliet grows to adulthood, pulled between her desire to live a free life like the one she remembers in Nicaragua, and her desire to build for her own children a life more settled than her parents could provide.With laser-sharp prose and breathtaking insight, these stories herald Carrie Snyder as one of Canada's most prodigiously talented writers.

The Judas Factor
By Ted Allbeury
Even in the murky world of espionage there are rules. Tad Anders has broken them all. Too violent and too unpredictable, he let his feelings affect his ability to do his duty. The spymasters looked at his file, talked discreetly amongst themselves and quietly pensioned him off as too dangerous for regular use. But now the other side is breaking the rules: KGB-organised assassinations, the ruthless hunting down of defectors, kidnappings - in Vienna, Paris, Cologne and now London. A revenge operation is called for. An East Berlin abduction under the noses of the Russians, done by an agent who can be disowned if anything goes wrong...Tad Anders is needed again.
